Is it New Bike Time? Always! 02/06/20- Let's face it, this had been an easy winter (so far; now that we've written this, everything could change!). Time to upgrade. Better brakes, better shifting and better comfort await anyone who has a bike more than a few years old. Amazing improvements! Be aware availability could become an issue if the Chinese Cornavirus doesn't go a way soon; bicycles are as dependent upon parts from that part of the world as are iPhones.
Got a bike that needs repairs? The nice weather has created a substantial backlog of repairs again, as is likely the case at many better shops. If you purchased your bike from us, remember that you can bring it in anytime, without calling ahead, for minor on-the-spot adjustments of brakes, gears and wheels (at no charge; this is included with any bike purchased from us).
Shock servicing: Presently we send forks & rear shocks out for servicing; it generally takes 2-3 weeks and runs about $260 for a fork rebuild, slightly less for most rear shocks. We don't recommend servicing any shock over 8 years old.
Hydraulic brake servicing: We no longer bleed or repair hydraulic brake systems more than 7 years old. The results are generally unacceptable and the cost of a replacement brake, which includes pads, isn't that much higher.
